Weather permitting, the Washington Nationals will officially return to DC today. DC will host the first Major League Baseball game of the 2011 season, along with New York. Both the Yankees and Nations have home openers starting at 1:05PM EST.
The Nationals also opened the MLB season in March 2008; the first regular season game ever played at Nationals Park. That game was against the Braves, as is the game today. Good luck Nationals. As of this writing, you are in first place in the NL East. Let's hope it stays that way! See you at the game. No rain, pls!
